Virtual Tea Party with Jane Pettigrew
Join a Virtual Tea Party with Jane Pettigrew
Wednesday 13th September 3pm GMT
Theme: Your Favourite Teaware
Tickets £25 each
Jane will take tea in her living room at home using all her traditional tea wares. She will have ready a pot of tea, a selection of sandwiches, some scones, jam and clotted cream and a few small pastries.
She will position her computer so that those attending can see exactly how she has set the table and arranged the food; how she pours the tea; holds her cup; how she uses her small tea knife to eat the scones; and how she uses the small pastry fork to eat the pastries.
She will talk in detail about every stage of the experience and take questions from those attending after each section of the tea party.
This will be a fun but also instructional experience.
You are invited into the living room of Jane Pettigrew to join in a virtual tea party. This is a great opportunity to understand how to present and enjoy a traditional English Afternoon Tea. It is a highly engaging and interactive session, open to everyone so no prior UKTA qualification or course attendance is necessary.
It is recommended for people with a specific interest in the customs of Afternoon Tea and those who have taken any of Jane’s four webinars on the History & Etiquette of Afternoon Tea. This relaxed, informal session is also ideal for people all over the world who would like to meet Jane, having come across her in the media, or through one of the many books she has written on tea.
This year’s tea parties are themed!
Wednesday September 13th 3pm GMT
The theme for this Tea Party is: Your Favourite Teaware
Beautiful teaware is something that most tea-drinkers become just as addicted to as the teas they drink. The right teawares can wonderfully enhance our tea brewing and drinking experience. Some are bought new, others might be family heirlooms. For this tea party, we would love you to bring along your favourite piece of tea equipage. This could be a teapot, a cup, saucer and plate or tea set, or silver wares – strainer, tea spoons, silver teapot or silver kettle, or samovar – anything that you love to use for tea making or drinking. Be prepared to tell us all about the item: how did you come to own it? Why do you love it? Do you use it every day or only for special occasions?
What will I need?
- Your phone, tablet or computer to join the webinar.
- OPTIONAL: Bring your favourite piece of teaware to show on screen.
- OPTIONAL: Prepare your own afternoon tea to enjoy during the party
These webinars will be held on Zoom. Please note that bookings close 2 hours before the start of the Webinar.
